"I couldn't have asked for a better experience working with the Washington Ireland Program for over a year. Because it is a relatively small organization I was tasked with real projects and was never short on tasks. The relaxed yet professional work environment was perfect for me and I had the opportunity to spend time working for a program that I was passionate about and enjoyed." - Colleen Warner, WIP Alumni
